Product intro and specs

The Captain 2 is the latest dual-18650 mod from longtime manufacturer iJoy. They don’t really have a standout product that was really popular, but they make some pretty decent stuff overall with a few missteps here and there. I wasn’t a fan of the original Captain mod, so we’ll see if this one is any better.

They updated it to have a rugged design, however it’s not waterproof (or at least not listed as such) like we’ve seen from the Aegis or Jackaroo lines. It is however meant to be shock resistant and dust resistant. It comes in a kit with the new Captain V sub ohm tank which is made for DL vaping.

First impressions

It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed or even used an iJoy mod personally, so I was expecting something pretty different than what I’ve gotten in the past. The last iJoy mods I reviewed were the Diamond and Avenger.

When I first got this mod though, it was pretty much just the Captain mod in an upgraded rugged casing. Same screen and menu system, and same design overall. The main difference is that this one takes 18650 batteries, while the original iJoy Captain was popular for being one of the first dual-20700 mods.

Due to these similarities, I wasn’t really impressed by it. Even though it’s more durable, it doesn’t seem like much of an upgrade. There is already a really good line of durable and water-resistant mods out there, and this one isn’t even listed as IP67 or water-resistant.

Build quality and design

The Captain 2 is a well-built mod. It looks nice and tactical. It feels solid, not cheap or flimsy, with some heft to it for sure. The fire button is rectangular, and it is positioned on the side of the mod. Below the screen are the up and down buttons and below them is the USB port under a rubber plug that prevents dust from getting in. It features a large black and white 0.96-inch screen that’s clear and easy to read, but a bit dim by today’s standards.

It’s not a small mod by any means, but it isn’t overly large either. It’s comparable to other rugged dual battery mods. The 510 pin is great and gave me no issues with any atomizer. Plenty of room to fit a 30 mm atomizer without overhang. The 510 is centered and the whole mod itself is symmetrical, which I like.

As far as colors go, they have five options listed. I was sent the rainbow one. All of them are mostly black though with different colored side panels. The body of the mod is covered in silicon for durability. All the color options have two black leather strips on each side and the leather looks and feels great. My rainbow panels are nice and shiny and look great as well.

I like that branding is kept nice and simple. There is a small “iJoy” logo above the screen. The back panel is carbon fiber styled with a Captain 2 logo at the bottom. The battery door is a standard latch system on the bottom, similar to the Aegis Legend. It worked great with no issues and I had no problem getting batteries in and out. Overall, it’s a great looking and well-built mod. The only negative I found is that there is some button rattle with the up and down buttons.
